Country music singer-songwriter Dolly Parton pulled in Sia to put a unique spin on the remake of her 1971 tune, "Here I Am." Check it out here!

Country music icon Dolly Parton and Australian songstress Sia’s “Here I Am” serves as the first musical taste from the upcoming Dumplin’ film soundtrack. The Netflix movie starring Jennifer Aniston will hit the streaming platform later this year and will also play at select U.S. theaters. “Here I Am” is a re-record, the tune was originally released on Parton’s 1971 Coat of Many Colors film soundtrack.

Dumplin’, based on the novel by Julie Murphy, focuses on a plus-size teenage girl (Danielle Macdonald) who enters a beauty pageant in a rebellious move to prove herself to her former beauty queen mother (Jennifer Aniston) and regain the confidence she feels she has lost. By doing so, the young women sparks a big change in her small Texas town.

Besides her work with Sia, Dolly has recorded more collaborations for the project with other big names such as Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, and Elle King. The country entertainer also co-wrote six original songs for the soundtrack, which drops on November 30th.

“Here I Am” Original Lyrics

Here I am, oh here I am, here I am
If you need a love that’s true
Need someone to stand by you
Here I am, oh here I am, here I am
If you need a helping hand, need someone to understand
Here I am, oh here I am, here I am

Here I am, I’m reaching out to give you love that you’re without
I can help you find what you’ve been looking for
Here I am, come to me, take my hand because I believe
I can give you all the love you need and more
Oh here I am, oh here I am, here I am

My world is such an empty place
I need someone to fill the space
And here I am, oh here I am, here I am
Because I’ve got so much love to give
I need someone to share it with
And here I am, oh here I am, here I am

Oh here I am, oh here I am, here I am
Here I am, oh here I am, here I am

Since it’s always fun to compare and contrast, check out the original version…
